TULSA, Okla. – Distraught over losing the World Heavyweight Championship to CM Punk on Raw (WATCH), Edge snapped on SmackDown, calling off his wedding plans to SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero. The news was too much to bear for the GM, who broke down in a screaming, crying fit. (WATCH)
But the Rated-R Superstar’s lover wasn’t the only one who suffered his wrath. After Jesse & Festus defeated Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder in a tag match, the Ultimate Opportunist launched a brutal attack on Festus, first spearing him to the canvas then knocking him out with a vicious steel chair attack. (WATCH)
Friday night was the culmination of the former champion’s brooding frustrations over the lack of support from our fans, and Hawkins, Ryder, and the love of his life, Vickie, after losing his title.
Golden opportunity But if it’s gold that can set Edge’s mind straight, he might not have to wait long. At the start of SmackDown – after WWE Champion Triple H and Montel Vontavious Porter poked fun at Edge’s loss and pending nuptials on MVP’s VIP Lounge – Vickie interrupted to announce Triple H would defend the WWE Championship against Edge at Great American Bash. (WATCH) Considering the Ultimate Opportunist called off the wedding, will the GM change her mind about the pay-per-view match-up? Great American Bash preview …
Golden dreams It isn’t just Edge who’s dreaming of gold. SmackDown’s Divas have eagerly awaited a chance to compete for the new Divas Championship. With a red-headed Natayla looking on from the announce table, Michelle McCool defeated Cherry, Kelly Kelly, Victoria and Maryse in a Golden Dreams Match. The victory earned the All-American Girl a match with Natalya for the Divas Championship. (WATCH)
Flying onto SmackDown The 2008 WWE Draft brought big changes to SmackDown, including Hall of Famer Jim Ross’ arrival on the blue brand and long-time announcer Michael Cole saying his final goodbye to fans as he heads to Raw. Making his SmackDown debut, after being drafted from Raw, was Jeff Hardy, who fought WWE Tag Team Champion John Morrison in a valiant back-and-forth battle. After avoiding a Moonlight Drive from the Shaman of Sexy, the Legend Thriller delivered a facebuster-powerbomb, followed up by a Swanton Bomb and the pinfall. (WATCH)
Samoan spike In his second appearance on SmackDown after the WWE Draft, Umaga defeated Funaki in convincing fashion. From start to finish, the 340-plus-pound Samoan Bulldozer dominated his challenger, finishing him off with a Samoan Spike.
Fatal 4th of July Four Way In celebration of Independence Day, the United States Championship was contested in a Fatal 4th of July Four Way. United States Champion Matt Hardy took on Mr. Kennedy, Chavo Guerrero and Shelton Benjamin. All four combatants waged war in a free-for-all for the title. In the end, Hardy delivered a Twist of Fate to Shelton Benjamin who landed on top of Chavo. Capitalizing on the chain of events, Hardy climbed on Chavo to get the pinfall and retain his gold.
On the eve of America’s Independence Day things were not looking so hot for America’s self proclaimed hero, the Olympic gold medalist, Kurt Angle. The night kicked off with AJ Styles coming to the ring with Kurt’s wife Karen, and calling him out.
Styles challenge was not answered by Kurt though, instead Team 3D, Brother Ray and Brother Devon came to the ring and told AJ that Kurt hadn’t made it to the arena yet because he was out on some hot dates. From there Brother Ray went to on to say that Karen was the problem and that she was nothing but a b**** and a w****. AJ had heard enough and attacked both Brother Ray and Brother Devon. In the end though, the numbers game was too much and AJ was once again left lying in the ring. That is until Rhino came out and made the save. From there Rhino challenged Team 3D along with Kurt Angle to a match at Victory Road. It was to be Team 3D and Kurt Angle versus Rhino, AJ Styles, and Christian Cage. Without hesitation Brother Devon accepted the challenge. The match was made with the fans getting to choose to the stipulation.
Up next we were shown footage from Kurt’s first blind date. He had met the first date at the gym which from the looks of the lady, it was the first time she had ever seen the inside of one. The lady was a beast to put it nicely. Suffice to say Kurt was not pleased.
Back at the iMPACT! Zone, LAX was addressing the fans and Beer Money, Robert Roode and James Storm via a live satellite feed from Houston, Texas where they were on a PR tour for the upcoming Pay-Per-View. Mid sentence Hector was interrupted as out came Storm, Jackie, and Roode for their match with the Motor City Machine Guns. The match didn’t go as Beer Money had promised because after a back and forth match they ended up losing. This came at the hands of Jackie getting up on the ring apron to spit beer in Chris Sabin’s face but missing and instead spraying Storm in the face. In an effort to take out their anger, Beer Money did something that has become common practice for them, they handcuffed their opponents, the Motor City Machine Guns to the ring ropes and began whipping them with belts. Both the refs and security that came down took the brunt of their frustrations as well. Even announcer Don West got a few whips from the belts. Finally, Jim Cornette came down to the ring and put an end to the mayhem. He then said that Beer Money would face the two most disgruntled and upset wrestlers that he could find in the back later on that night.
Up next we see footage from Kurt’s second date. If you thought the first date was bad, this one was even worse. Lets just say this date had a little something extra and not in a good way….she or should we say he was a man. Kurt was once again not pleased.
Back in the arena Roxxi and Moose were squaring off in the second ever Bimbo Brawl. In a match that saw both ladies take a ton of punishment it was Moose that picked up the win when she split Roxxi open after DDTing her on to a street sign in the middle of the ring.
In the back we see Kevin Nash being asked by Cornette to face Beer Money later that night. Nash agrees to do so and then asks who his opponent will be. Cornette is hesitant but tells him it will be the TNA World Heavyweight Champion Samoa Joe. Nash says he sees this as an opportunity.
Joe didn’t take the news as well when he was told Nash would be his partner. In the end Cornette told him he didn’t have a choice and thus the main event was set for later in the night.
It was time for Angle’s last blind date. At first it seemed like this one would turn out ok until it came out that the woman had a spastic colon. Kurt promised he was going to get Brother Ray for setting him up on three terrible blind dates.
In the second round of the World X Cup it was Alex Kozlov accompanied by Davari taking on Ray Bucanero of Team Mexico. Kozlov started off strong and got an early near fall. In the end though, it was Team Mexico that got the victory and two more points when Bucanero hit a senton bomb from the tope rope.
Kurt had finally arrived at the arena and came out to the ring. He immediately called out Brother Ray. Both Brother Ray and Brother Devon come out immediately Brother Ray tries to calm Kurt down. He tells them all about the match that Brother Devon had agreed to for them. He also apologized for the dates and said he had lost his black book and thus he had to use Brother Devon’s black book and that is where those ladies had come from.
Brother Ray said he would make it up to Kurt and called out a very pretty blond lady to the ring. It was going well until she told Kurt that one of her traits was that she was very loyal. Kurt got angry saying no lady was loyal and they all cheated just like his wife Karen. It looked like Kurt was going to get physical, he then apologized saying he would never strike a woman but he knew someone who would. Out came the beautiful people. They attacked the woman in the ring and put a brown bag over her head.
It was about this time that Karen came out and slapped Kurt in the face and knocked down both Angelina Love and Velvet Sky. They got back to their feet and all start to surround Karen when out comes AJ, ODB, Gail Kim, and Rhino. All eight of them begin going at it…all hell has broken loose in the ring.
After a commercial break and everyone in the ring had been broken up Jeremy Borash is in the back with Booker T in his plush locker room. Booker says he thinks it’s great that Joe is so focused on Nash because that way Joe has not been concentrating on him. He promises that he will win the title from Joe in his home town of Houston at Victory Road.
Another portion of Rough Cut with Matt Morgan airs and he is talking about how he got into wrestling.
In the next round of the World X Cup it is Curry Man of Team TNA taking on Team Japan’s Milano. In a back and forth match it was Team Japan that picked up the win after a low blow.
In the back Lauren is interviewing Storm and Roode who say they aren’t afraid of Nash or Joe. James Storm also shows off his new Beer Money home made t-shirts.
In a much anticipated match Taylor is facing Raisha Saeed for a chance to face Awesome King next week for not only the 25,000 dollars but also the Knockout’s Title. After a back and forth match that included interference from Kong on more than one occasion, it was Taylor that got the win with a German Suplex. Next week she would have her rematch with Kong.
In the main event of the night, it was Beer Money going against Joe and Nash. It was clear that both Joe and Nash were having trouble co existing each trying to upstage the other. Although, this was coming more from Joe, especially when he blind tagged himself into the match. It was a back and forth match. Nash tried to get the tag in at one point and got a one arm salute from Joe. In the end Joe hit a muscle buster for the win. One thing is for sure this night did not go well at all for Beer Money as they lost both their matches. Momentum is clearly on the side of LAX heading into their title match at Victory Road.
Back in the ring, even after picking up the win Joe and Nash are having words with each other. Suddenly they are interrupted when Sting of all people’s music began playing! Was he back? YES! Sting was up in the rafters looking down as iMPACT! went off the air.

Background Info & Details On ECW’s Newest Star Posted by Andy Steven on 07/02/2008 at 02:53 AM
Atlas Ortiz (Richard Young) made his official WWE television debut on this week’s edition of ECW on Sci Fi. He is from Phoenix, Arizona and was born on May 12, 1975.
Atlas Ortiz made his wrestling debut in WWE’s former developmental territory Ohio Valley Wrestling back in January 2007 as Atlas Da Bone. He was billed as one of the most charismatic superstars during his time in OVW. Atlas Ortiz has more recently been working in WWE’s current developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling, also as Atlas Da Bone.
Atlas Ortiz also has a big background in football, including paying for the NFL's Kansas City Chiefs practice squad, a stint in Vince McMahon’s XFL and the CFL as well as several stints in the AFL.
United States Champion Matt Hardy, Finlay & Hornswoggle def. WWE Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison & Chavo Guerrero Atlas Ortiz def. Armando Estrada ECW Champion Mark Henry def. Colin Delaney (non-title)
TULSA, Okla. - After bringing the ECW Championship back home to the Land of the Extreme – proving triumphant in an epic Triple Threat Match with Kane and Big Show at Night of Champions – ECW Champion Mark Henry celebrated with a crushing victory over the courageous Colin Delaney. (WATCH)
Earlier in the evening, Tommy Dreamer – with Delaney in tow – interrupted Henry and questioned whether the World’s Strongest Man actually knew what it meant to hold the coveted extreme title. After challenging Henry, the unimpressed new champion proclaimed that if young Delaney could beat him, he would give Dreamer his opportunity. Unfortunately for the ECW Original, although Delaney possessed the heart and soul of ECW, he could not overcome such enormous odds.
As part of his New Superstar Initiative, ECW General Manager Theodore Long introduced Atlas Ortiz, the latest addition to the ECW roster. The newcomer made a notable first impression, scoring a victory over former ECW GM Armando Estrada in his debut match.
In a fast and furious Six-Man Tag Team Match, United States Champion Matt Hardy teamed with fellow ECW draftees Finlay & Hornswoggle to defeat WWE Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison & their partner Chavo Guerrero. After Hardy delivered the Twist of Fate to Morrison, and Hornswoggle dropped the Tadpole Splash on Guerrero, Finlay finished off the self-proclaimed “Mexican Warrior” with an authoritative Celtic Cross.
CM Punk def. Edge to become the new World Heavyweight Champion WWE Women's Champion Mickie James def. Jillian World Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase def. Darren Wade & Steve Anthony Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston def. Chris Jericho (disqualification) World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk def. JBL (World Heavyweight Championship Match)
OKLAHOMA CITY – Monday’s Raw saw the largest crowd ever for a WWE live event in Oklahoma City, with 11,560 fans in attendance to witness Jim Ross’ farewell to Raw. Though the packed show began without the brand holding a World Championship, it was a different case by the time the night ended. In the course of the evening, CM Punk cashed in his Money in the Bank contract to compete against Edge and win the Rated-R Superstar’s World Heavyweight Championship, bringing the title back to Raw for the first time in years. (WATCH)
Y2Jaded Another recent draftee who found himself wearing gold on Monday night was new Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston. The Jamaican Superstar was forced to defend his title against the man he won it from the night before, Chris Jericho. Y2J came to the ring bitter at the Night of Champions turn-out, blaming his loss on Shawn Michaels for interfering in the match, and challenging HBK to a contest at The Great American Bash in just three weeks. The match ended with Jericho being disqualified for pulling on Kingston’s tights during a pin, leaving the Intercontinental Championship securely around the Jamaican Superstar’s waist. Furious at his second loss to Kingston in two nights, Y2J assaulted the Intercontinental Champion after their match, going for the eyes just as he has against HBK in recent weeks. (WATCH)
A Private Matter Though the night was packed with action and fallout from Night of Champions, it began on a down note. As promised, Shane McMahon addressed the WWE Universe in regards to the accident that fell Mr. McMahon at the end of last week’s Raw. Shane opted to keep the WWE Chairman’s condition private, but did urge the Raw Superstars and all WWE employees to pull together during this period of uncertainty. Read the full story... (WATCH)
Shutting up Santino Having just joined the Raw Roster as part of the 2008 Draft, Rey Mysterio greeted the Raw audience and told them how excited he was to be on Monday nights. Before he could say much else, however, Santino Marella came to the ring and interrupted the Master of the 619. The Italian Superstar spoke down to the Ultimate Underdog, insulting the former World Champion and not allowing him a word in edgewise. Mysterio bided his time, and then gave the audience exactly what they wanted: Attacking Marella and shutting him up with the 619. (WATCH)
Young Turks At Night of Champions, Cody Rhodes shocked the world by betraying his partner and mentor, Hardcore Holly, teaming with Ted DiBiase to defeat the veteran and become the new World Tag Team Champions. On Monday night, the two competed in their second match as a team against Darren Wade & Steve Anthony. After winning the match with a particularly strong showing, Cody explained his betrayal the night before, saying that he approached DiBiase about forming a partnership, since he was tired of carrying Hardcore Holly in the ring. DiBiase added that most other young people don’t have the spine that they do, declaring their new partnership “simply priceless.”
A Sad Song for Jillian Fresh off her Night of Champions victory over Katie Lea Burchill, WWE Women’s Champion squared off against Jillian in a non-title match. The Women’s Champion showed why she deserves to have gold around her waist, pinning Jillian for the win after hitting the songstress with a Mick Kick.
Big Red Mistake The night before, Kane had lost his ECW Championship to Mark Henry, so he probably wasn’t the best person to show aggression toward on Monday night. Jamie Noble, however, was hoping to impress Katie Lea Burchill by issuing a warning to the biggest, baddest guy around, who happened to be the Big Red Machine. Kane didn’t take kindly to Noble’s threats, and chased him to ring, where he physically punished the recent Raw draftee.
Straightedge Champion As mentioned earlier, CM Punk made good use of his Money in the Bank briefcase on Monday night, winning the World Heavyweight Championship from Edge. Proving that he was no “paper champion,” the Straightedge Superstar went on to successfully defend his new title against JBL. To get all the details on CM Punk’s triumphant win, and his first World Title defense, read the full story…
D-Lo Brown made his return to World Wrestling Entertainment tonight in a dark match prior to WWE Monday Night Raw at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City. D-Lo Brown defeated Charlie Haas after a frog splash.
WWE announced that D-Lo Brown had been signed to a contract on June 5, 2008.
